We made reservations and were promptly seated at the time. We had excellent waitress that was very informative, enjoyable and personable! (The one traveling to Dubai, sorry can't remember her name). This was my husbands first visit to a Melting Pot and he was very impressed! We had the limited peaches and cream dessert and asked if there was ice... More

I’ve dined here multiple times since relocating to San Antonio. It is one of my favorite restaurants for one reason—I have celiac disease and the fact that you can see all the ingredients going in to your meal makes it almost a guarantee that I will not be glutened. I’ve been dining at melting pots all over the country but... More

It was a good experience and fun. But it was expensive. This was our first time so we needed help with the options. The waiter was helpful with the menu.

This place is just wow! I've eaten at the MP a few times before, but this last experience was very memorable. It's a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy a romantic evening. The service, the food, and the atmosphere are fantastic! Your waiter is not in a rush to get you... More

I was looking for a romantic evening out. I found a package that the Melting Pot offered; a private booth, set up with a bottle of wine, a bouquet of flowers and a full-course fondue meal. The food is great. The service is spectacular. But if it is the company that you enjoy, this is the place to go. The... More

I've always liked the Melting Pot. I know it is overpriced for making you basically cook your own food, but I can't help but enjoy the entire experience. This Melting Pot I was disappointed by their rule of additional charges for brownies, cheesecake, and pound cake with the dessert course. Since my husband and I typically buy a 4 course... More

We go to Melting Pots when we travel whenever we get the chance because our children love the novelty of cooking their own food at the table. The San Antonio Melting Pot always has excellent service from knowledgeable servers, which is a big bonus for us because we are foodies and we always have a lot of questions. This trip... More

Wife and I had dinner here for our anniversary. We were drawn to this place by stories of having a fun dining experience and boy did the Melting Pot deliver. The food is good (not excellent) but the fun in essentially cooking your own food made up for what was lacking. The best part is no doubt the dessert. We... More

The food was decent. The only thing we weren't expecting was to boil our steak. The cheese and dessert entrees were very good. I don't like the idea of spending $90 on a steak dinner that you boil. We were sat at a table where the bulbs were out. I couldn't even see my husband. The girl was surprised when... More
